Welcome to Blogland!!

One of my best friends, Sarah, has started a blog!! You have seen many pictures of her daughter Sydney. We pregnant together and Sydney is like 2 1/2 weeks younger than Parker. She is a great friend and has always been there for me when I need her. We took child birthing classes together, we have been on countless trips together and now our kids get to grow up together! Her and her husband were right in the thick of things with us during Parker's diagnosis. We cried together and laughed together during that crazy time. I will never forget the first time she met Parker....It was at Childrens' hospital. I was standing by tiny little Parker in his ICU bed and she walks into his room. She came over and hugged me and we both cried and hugged each other for a good 5 minutes. I had been trying so hard to be stong for everyone and not cry, but when I saw Sarah the tears just started flowing. I think it was at that moment we realized that what we had planned and anticipated together for the last 9 months was going to be very different than what we thought. I rarely let people see me cry like that--besides Dennis. Even though this last year was VERY different than we thought, I wouldnt change it for anything. I love watching Sydney and Parker, and I am so excited to see them grow up together and become close friends! Maybe sometime I will share the experience of when I met Sydney for the first time (it was an amazing day, but emotional)....

This is Sarah and I in Wyoming

Anyways, Sarah is a very good friend and I would love it if yall would go check out her new blog and say a quick hello!!
I will leave you with a few cute pictures of Parker and Sydney from their first meeting to a few weeks ago...
